After ten years of high blood pressure, headaches and body cramps, I was finally diagnosed with a tumor in the left adrenal gland. It is producing too much aldosterone and therefore I have a very low potassium level. This process has been so slow and exausting. I have my first appointment with the surgeon on Thursday which is a bit scary. I have little children to take care of and my fears do get the better of me. Also, i have had some terrible moodswings and wonder if anyone out there understands what I am going through. Because I look fine, there's not a lot of understanding from those around me. By the way, i selected adrenal cancer as the topic because conns was not an option.
